Golden Gates - Reviews


Dear Vitaliy and your wonderful group of young dancers and musicians!

Thank for a very educational and entertaining performance of Russian Folk music and dance. Your talented artists captured the hearts of more than 200 UNC Charlotte students who came to the concert. Many of them approached me later and said that it was unforgettable and changed their views on relation between cultures and people.

We hope that there will be another opportunity to bring your ensemble to UNCC next year. We are thankful to the Russian Club and Russian Program, the Office of International Programs and Department of Languages and Cultures who helped in this project.

Kind regards,
Yuliya Baldwin

"The performance was a huge success! We had many people tell us how much they enjoyed Golden Gates. People will be talking about this for a long time to come."
